When Kevin Federline showed up in a Los Angeles court yesterday wearing an eye patch, it wasn't because the budding actor was researching a pirate role.
A source tells Usmagazine.com that the patch was actually for a case of pink eye. The ailment, which was diagnosed after his doctor made a house call on Tuesday, is highly contagious.
"[Kevin] had strep throat all last week and then got pink eye," the source tells Us. "It's crazy. He's not doing too well physically but he's trying to get better as he has to leave next week to tape One Tree Hill again."
Thankfully, the source says that Federline's mom is with him and taking care of everything so he can heal -- and not infect anyone else!
